Mickoski: VMRO-DPMNE does not accept constitutional and name changes (VIDEO)

VMRO-DPMNE remains on its position that it will not accept a change to the constitution in order to change the constitutional name of the country, said party leader Hristijan Mickoski after a leaders’ meeting where Prime Minister Zoran Zaev informed about the course of the name talks.

“What was speculation in the past days and the speculation that Zoran Zaev yesterday said was just a speculation, came out to be true. Zoran Zaev and Nikola Dimitrov accepted a solution that was presented to us for the first today at a meeting that was supposed to be of informative character. VMRO-DPMNE remains on its position that it will not accept a change to the constitution in order to change the constitutional name of the country. The whole process was kept secret and the national and state positions of the Republic of Macedonia were endangered. The road to the goal is clear, integration into the EU and NATO, but it is obvious that the trajectory is different,” Mickoski said.
